Could we win on the SINGLE issue of preserving a women's right to choose?
What do the polls say? I get the feeling there are a lot of moderate Republicans who voted for Shrub and are secretly crossing their fingers that he can't get any of his judges through. If it became really apparent that women were on the verge of losing their right to choose could that be enough? To me, it's apparent they ARE on the verge of losing their right to choose. It just doesn't seem most Americans (other than the Christofascists) have figured this out.

2. This is exactly why the Republicans will protect Roe v. Wade.
Bush will not appoint the sufficient justices to overturn Roe for the precise reason that it would destroy the Republican party.

3. It is not only the right to choose
I cannot believe pro-choice people voted for the moron. And I agree, the GOP does not want to touch overturning Roe v. Wade. If they do, screwed in a red state means you'll stay screwed unless you can travel. CA and NY will never ban legal abortion. And if you have money, you'll be able to find a doctor - this hasn't changed.

They have waaayyy too many wing nuts who want to ban birth control. This is seriously making me think about going back to school to be a pharmacist. I keep telling my daughters it isn't just abortion. And while we're at it, we need to start hammering the baby selling, er I mean adoption. I need to find the article re: the legal baby selling and how a judge, who hears cases relating to adoption sits on the board of the baby selling company. I am APPALLED at the $50K+ cost for "adoption". IMHO, this is why so many religious factions are anti-abortion, cut into their profit and their opportunity to "punish". A friend of my daughter was adopted from Korea (which some what irks me that so many kids here are available but that is another story) because her parents weren't of the "right" religion to adopt domestically. Pro-life my heinie, pro-profit is more like it.

4. Duane, I've this for a long while
Choice is a very popular, bedrock freedom now. It cuts across a fair bit of the political spectrum .... surely from faaaaaar left to somewhee between moderate and conservative right .... and maybe even farther right. Only the true loonies strongly oppose it.

I have no data to prove this, but I strongly feel we could run and win on that point alone if we simply say "*They* want to take away a woman's right to choose and **we** won't."

5. YES. If that's the ONLY issue.
If it was about "I will let choice be the law" or "I will outlaw abortion" we would win by a HUGE landslide. 75% of republicans are pro-choice.

6. "Issues" are smoke and mirrors. Check with Diebold.
